Lot so work left to be done. I am making a custom shroud to cover to top of the case, to hide the rad, really. I'll be putting an LCD temp display as well in the shroud...but that's next weekend!

Dave, this was great to see!! Anyone who will slash up a brand new pretty case is alright in my book. Some really nice work here. The finished product should be quite nice

I'm guessing you've changed most of the components now Cad such as from AMD to Intel etc etc.

lol. Yep. This case now houses the Conroe FAH machine. No watercooling bits in it right now as I've got them out to go into the shell I've got on the go for the top. This project is on hold for a bit, while I gather some materials for the top. It's proving a far harder task than I thought!

LoL. sig is what it is. Tired of updating for the moment.

I don't really like the Phys-X, but after dumping $350 on it, you bet I'm gonna use it. But I had a reason for my purchase.

In regards as to what it can do, I may one of few people that "know". I tend to have an inklin' as to what may come in the future, may even participate in such projects.

PCI-E card was @ CES. Runs hot becasue of the lame heatsink. Zalman Fatal1ty VF-1 works just fine @ 5v. THe concern isn't that it's hot, but that the fan runs @ such a high speed.
